I obviously have a pre-game pre-preview to write prior to the Northwestern game, but here is something that caught my eye that will provide amusement for your soporific Friday afternoon while battling the clock of go-homeness. Meanwhile, I have a boat trailer to assemble; after that and a trip to the post office, I’ll be back with some serious (ok, ok, not so serious) Homecoming Edition takes on the forthcoming NWU contest.
But for now, savor this little tidbit. CAN YOU SAY IMMINENT TRANSFER TO UNC? PHANTOM AFRICAN AND AFRICAN-AMERICAN STUDIES CLASSES URGENTLY NEEDED!!!!
It seems that a certain true freshman quarterback at Ohio State has been refreshingly candid on Twitter about how he thinks Dr. Gordon Gee should run his institution, to wit:
Well, then. That pretty much sums it up.
Here’s the take on young Cardale, straight from Brutus’ mouth:
Overview: Cardale Jones initially signed his national letter of intent with Ohio State in February 2011, but with the plan of delaying his enrollment and attending Fork Union Military Academy in the fall, which he did this past season and where he roomed with 2012 Ohio State recruit Michael Thomas … he was rated by Rivals.com as the No. 12 prep school player in the country in 2011 … he led perennial northeast Ohio power Cleveland Glenville to a 24-3 record as a starting quarterback … passed for 1,689 yards and 22 touchdowns as a senior in 2011 for coach Ted Ginn and was named third-team Division I all-state by the Associated Press … threw for 2,168 yards and 18 touchdowns as a junior in 2009, and he also had 14 career rushing touchdowns … was the MVP of the 2010 Offense-Defense Bowl, and he also played in the Big 33 Game … a basketball letterman at Glenville … Cardale is the son of Florence Jones … he enrolled at Ohio State in January 2012.
What do you want to bet that when the Urban spin doctors get their hands on this, it will be written off as a prank? Or it was his dumbass baby brother who wrote dat after stealing Cardale’s phone. Yeah, that’s it!
I mean, we ain’t come to PLAY SCHOOL!
And “Fork Union” Military Academy? FORK UNION? That’s made up, right? Fork U! Anyhow, they apparently didn’t succeed in enhancing this kid’s maturation by sending him to ol’ Fork U. Masturbation, maybe, but certainly not maturation.
At least PSU sent Chris Fenis to Kiski, a name that no one can make fun of.
This tweet has certainly gone viral by now, so it will be interesting to watch the fallout. Amen.
